Diabetic retinopathy is a medical disorder, resulting from the complications of diabetes mellitus and is also one of the leading cause of blindness. Diabetic retinopathy is determined by the type of diabetes the individual is diagnosed with, amount of time that the individual has diabetes and the level to which the blood sugar is controlled. The symptoms of diabetic retinopathy include very mild to no symptoms at the beginning of the condition, blurred and fluctuating vision, impairment of color vision, eventually leading to blindness.

Management of diabetes is critical towards the prevention and successful treatment of diabetic retinopathy because excessive sugar in the blood can lead to the blocking of the tiny blood vessels nourishing the retina, cutting off the blood supply. This results in the formation of new blood vessels which are not perfectly developed, leading to being susceptible to leaks easily.

Some of the associated complications of diabetic retinopathy include blindness, cataracts, vitreous hemorrhage, glaucoma, and retinal detachment. Diabetic retinopathy is highly treatable, even individuals diagnosed with advanced diabetic retinopathy have an estimated 95% chance of retaining their vision before the retina is permanently damaged.

The global diabetic retinopathy treatment market is anticipated to grow at faster CAGR, owing to a number of factors such as the increasing prevalence of diabetic retinopathy, increasing prevalence of diabetes of all types, and increasing incidence of associated complications such as blindness.
